Former Witch Warns Parents Against Shows Like Disney’s OWL HOUSE
By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Jenny Weaver, a former witch who is now a born-again Christian, warned parents against shows like Disney’s THE OWL HOUSE series for children because of their ability to influence children in demonic culture.
THE OWL HOUSE is about a teenager who finds herself stuck in the “Demon Realm” and battles in a demonic realm alongside a rebellious witch and a pint-sized warrior.
“[The demonic hold that was over my life is] why I tell parents when I minister, it’s not a joke when we say be careful what your children are watching,” Weaver said.
Weaver knows that the media can influence children. Weaver told CBN that before turning her life over to Christ, a movie influenced her decision to become a witch:
“I actually watched a movie that was very popular when I was in high school and it was called The Craft,” said Jenny Weaver. “And the movie was about four high school witches that had all of this power, that had all of this control.”
Weaver, who grew up in a dysfunctional home, and battled depression. She saw the power in the movie as a way out.
“I remember hearing these voices, ‘Just kill yourself. Just go away. It would be better off if you would just die.’ And so, I started to cut my wrists severely. I remember having 56 cuts all up and down my arms. My arms were shredded. And it was a way in my mind that I was able to escape,” explained Weaver.
Cutting gave way to the demonic realm and Weaver eventually became a practicing witch.
“I was smoking methamphetamines in dope houses, sleeping in people’s sheds, being tore up by bugs all day long. And so, I remember just crying out to God. I cried out to the top of my lungs, I said ‘God Help Me!'”
That’s when her life changed forever.
“God rescued me,” said Weaver.
Thankfully, the Holy Spirit infiltrated Weaver’s life through worship. Now, she heads up JennyWeaverWorships.com and sings scripture to her Facebook followers.
